Just a moment of love

Watercolour and ink

Is quantum reality
Beyond actuality
Does just a moment of love
Create all the stars above
Like a rainbow in the rain
Truth is never quite the same
For one that comes in love and pain

Porky the dog

Porky in pencil.


This is a drawing of Rosy dog Porky from Fritzy Art Blog.
The drawing is from a photo and I used the grid system.
I like doing freehand drawings but I find the grid system is best for creating a true likeness.

Marilyn Monroe finished.

Marilyn Monroe
This is one I did earlier on in pencil in some ways I prefer drawing to painting it always seems to look more dramatic. I like old black and white films for the same reason.
In the future I am going to put less writing on this blog I find it take up far too much time, but I will put some finished works of art with one or two words. I read the other day that someone takes ten minutes a day to run their blog it takes me to about midday and that is far to long.
Below is the finished painting of Marilyn Monroe I have painted the background in violet and blue using the complementary colours of yellow ochre and Naples yellow for the girl and dress.
I always feel there was something sad about Marilyn Monroe, but then I see sadness in the leaves on the trees.
